Date Announced
DEC 19, 2005
Vehicles Affected
Lexus Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
On certain passenger vehicles, there is a possibility that the accelerator pedal may temporarily become stuck in the partially depressed position due to inadequate clearance between the accelerator pedal linkage and a plastic pad embedded into the vehicle's carpet.
Dealers will inspect the clearance of the acceleration pedal and carpet, replace the pedal assembly with a revised assembly, and modify the carpet free of charge. The recall began on December 27, 2005. Owners may contact Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.
